SMP Can Treat All Types of Hair Loss

What Causes Hair Loss?

There are many varieties of balding that may occur throughout a man’s life, and scalp micropigmentation (SMP) can treat all of them. Male pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss. It is responsible for the majority of all the types of hair loss reported across the world. This type of hair loss can initially be determined by observing how the hair is lost. It typically begins with a receding hairline at the temporal and frontal regions of the scalp. The vertex or crown region also eventually starts to lose hair beginning at the center of the scalp and then moving outward. All of these areas of hair loss will eventually meet, and the top of the head will lose all of its hair. Only the areas at the lower sides and back of the scalp will retain active hair follicles. Male pattern baldness is also called androgenic alopecia, and it is a hereditary and genetic form of hair loss.


Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata is another type of hair loss. It is caused by a form of autoimmune disorder. Many believe that alopecia areata is brought on by stress; however, there is no good evidence to prove that. It can appear on the scalp and even the beard in small patches of hair loss. It can also just randomly go away only to reappear at any time without any reason.

A form of hair loss that has been proven to be stress-related is called telogen effluvium. Patients lose large amounts of hair after a traumatic event from this type of hair loss. These are most frequently caused by major life experiences such as the death of a loved one, a nasty divorce, a serious accident, a major surgery, or childbirth. These events may trigger a sudden shift between the anagen and telogen hair growth cycles, resulting in a longer resting phase. The density will become thinner in different areas of the scalp due to the fact that new hair growth is not replacing the hair that has fallen out.

Types of Hair Loss

There are also types of hair loss that may occur due to illness, infection, or medication. Most of the time these types of hair loss are only temporary and can be treated. A cancer patient who is undergoing chemotherapy is a perfect example of this type of hair loss.

Scalp micro-pigmentation (SMP) is a great treatment for pre-emptively dealing with the loss of hair that occurs during chemotherapy. SMP is perhaps one of the most innovative among the multitude of hair restoration solutions available today. It is not only applicable to every type of hair loss, but it can also be used during any phase of the hair loss. Male pattern baldness can easily be camouflaged with this treatment. The same goes for all of the types of hair loss mentioned above. SMP can also be used for treating most scars located on the scalp.

If you are dealing with any type of hair loss and are trying to figure out which hair restoration treatment is best for you, contact the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic today to book your no-obligation consultation.
